Gift Cards for Positive Behavior Incentives
Click here for important information from PISD School Board President Missy Bender about public school funding. If you want your school tax dollars to stay in public education TAKE ACTION:
- Tell your Legislators you feel they are not being transparent when they use their "savings" from property value growth to fund other state priorities, and that you expect your tax dollars, paid to your public school district, to remain in public education.
- Hold them accountable for what they are and are not doing to fix it. Legislators say they don’t like Robin Hood. OK, what's the solution? What are they going to do to change it?
- Share your personal experiences and the issues you see impacting your local school district to make the message more meaningful to legislators.
- Stay connected with Taxparency Texas on Twitter and Facebook.

Be A Shepton Volunteer
As our children get older in school, it seems that the school doesn’t need as much help as they used to. Actually they still need us, just in differing ways. Do you have an hour once a month, once every 3 or 4 months, once a year? We have volunteer opportunities that fit all of these needs and more. Sign up to help in a variety of ways by checking your preferences on our PTSA Toolkit or sign up to be “Ready to Help” when the opportunity arises. You may also contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
IMPORTANT: You must be a cleared volunteer to volunteer at the school. Be sure to complete your PISD Volunteer Application for 2017-2018.
If you have any trouble navigating our site, please contact email@example.com.
